    Getting money from a guarantor living in EEC

    hi - i finally got possesssion from the TFH and now need to take the ex-tenant's father to court for rent arrears and damages... he paid some arrears about a year ago, but refuses to pay the final bill...

    any ideas on how to get cash from him (he has a uk bank account and i have the details and he has money)

    I have recently come across a total paper based European small claims court -- anyone use it ? or know anyone who has ?

    thanks

      Wasn't there a thread on here a few weeks ago about a new Euro-scheme along these lines? Can't recall details but maybe someone else can?

          Here's a guide to the European Small Claims Court
          http://tinyurl.com/lvlyto (and there's a helpline number)

          The limit for claims is €2,000.

            • Help to understand letting agent contract termination clauses
              by gkasus
              I am a first time landlord. Appreciate anyone's help on the interpretation of the termination clauses for my fully managed let property. The tenancy agreement started in 2017 for 1 year and then went into periodic to now. Tenancy is still active.

              The current contract is quite explicit...

              What does the tenancy agreement say the deposit is? If it says a months rent for example it would be easy for the tenant to claim that they paid you one week by bank transfer and the rest in cash. It would be practically impossible for you to dispute this and their penalty claim then goes up to 3x 1...

              by Battered landlord
              I’ve been a bit naive. I had a short hold tenancy agreement with tenants signed 18 months ago for a year. They have just moved out. I only recently obtained a small portion of the deposit (initially was asked if I could give them a bit of a grace period to get depot together). They promised to pay...

              by mariner
              I assume T caused the basin damage, so charge the T for replacing it less estimate for FW&T for lost years of life expectancy since provided new. Thus the Deposit remains intact for other T damage discovered. less FW&T, or combine and use Deposit scheme ADR

            • rough cost of repairing a basin
              by Battered landlord
              Tenants have cracked a basin (it was new when they moved in). The damages outweigh the deposit I have. I got a quote of £200 for a new sink, including labour and disposal of old sink). They have asked how much to just repair it. Can anyone give me a rough idea? Thanks very much.

              I wouldn't repair it. The cost obviously depends on the basin, anything from £30 up. As long you get a similar one fitting should be straightforward so I would think £200 was a bit steep. I doubt you'd need to pay for disposal, it should fit in your wheelie bin.

              by eniacs
              Yes you are right. I've explained to them and they understand. They have come back with another guarantor who has a higher income so will try that. Also have another viewing tomorrow with someone else as a back up.

              Thanks for assistance. Great forums.

              Hello;

              I've got a tennant applying to rent, everything seems normal, visited the place with her mum and has 2 teenage boys. She works part time but not enough to get approved for the rental payments. She has offered her mum (also working and home owner) as guarantor.

              Through...
